Portrait photography through an Afghan Box Camera (kamra-e-faoree) is typical of Afghan street photographers. This camera is used by traveling photographers, who work in public spaces. In this essay, the Afghan Chamber is the main subject and is used in a performative way by standing in front of the people while the desired picture is taken. This process is a return to the analog and to a “slower” relation with photography, a relation that does not fear imperfections, it embraces them.
